So one of the members in our campaign will be running skaven and has indicated he intends to bring the Clan Skryre rat ogre out at some point. I have never played with or against one of these so I wanted to get your opinions about the character and tactics.
(I used the search function to look for a topic about this but came up blank. Sorry if this has been done before)
1) Is the Skryre rat ogre typically worth its cost? (100gc plus 1 wyrdstone upkeep) For skaven (larger warbands) I could see the value of the 1 shard being 5-15gc upkeep. Is this a late campaign addition or could you see it being taken early on?
2) How effective has it been in the games you've played?
